Here’s how to install git on osx from source (or any other *nix system for that matter).
wget http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/git-126.96.36.199.tar.gz tar xzvf git-188.8.131.52.tar.gz cd git-184.108.40.206 ./configure sudo make && sudo make install
Test it out by checking out merb-core:
git clone git://github.com/wycats/merb-core.git
One of the great things about Rails and the Ruby development community is that our interests lie outside of just writing code in dreamweaver and ftping it to the server. I’d venture to say that most Rails developers want the kind of control of a server that shared hosting doesn’t offer. Sure, I could pay $5 to Dreamhost to get one site up in running, or I could pay $20 and get a VPS from someone like linode or slicehost and do whatever I want with it, all the while learning valuable unix skills. The whole ‘hosting is a black box mentality’ will just keep developers continually relying on hosting vendors for a crucial aspect of their business.
I kept getting this error when running rake on new rails 2.0.2 app. Turns out the problem was that I needed to upgrade rake from 0.7.3 to 0.8.1. Fixed it.
Overall, 2007 was pretty disappointing compared to 2006, but these are the ones that left a mark on the calendar.
1. Shout Out Louds – Our Ill Wills
2. Miracle Fortress – Five Roses
3. Dan Deacon – Spiderman of The Rings (basically I just listened to Crystal Cat and Wham City a million times)
4. Band of Horses – Cease To Begin (will be forever linked with reading The Fountainhead on the subway)
5. Animal Collective – Strawberry Jam
6. Ryan Adams – Easy Tiger
7. No Age – Weirdo Rippers
Brian Eno – Before And After Science (obviously did not come out in 2007, but I listened to it more than any other album this year)
